Abstract: In this article I outline research which seeks to explore the intersections of dementia, ethnicity and family care. My focus is how research that aims to focus on dementia care and ethnicity illuminates the experiences of members of minoritized ethnic groups in accessing statutory services. I reflect on how the intersections of racialized identities and western medical terminology make researching and providing services across racialized boundaries and health/illness a complex procedure. This commentary has direct implications for the care of people with dementia, their family members and for service development within health and social care fields.
